Abstract


Research on the identification of publishing barriers among lecturers is an important aspect that needs to be reviewed as it helps provide important information to the top management of the university to help prepare strategies for boosting publications among academics. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to identify the factors that prevent lecturers at the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities (FSSK), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) from publishing. The study was conducted by using a cross sectional quantitative design. A total of 72 lecturers currently employed at FSSK, UKM were selected as survey respondents. The data were analyzed descriptively to get an overview of the barriers faced by the lecturers in carrying out publication. The results showed that the majority of those involved in the study were female lecturers (58.1%), senior lecturers of Grade DS51 / 52 (49.3%) and most of them admitted to have ever lead a research grant between 2013 and 2016 (79.5%). The analysis of the study found that the teaching and supervisory factor (min = 2.99) was the factor that recorded the highest mean as an obstacle among the lecturers to carry out publication, followed by the administrative position factor (mean = 2.91) and situational factor (mean = 2.76) and factors related to research (mean = 2.02). The findings have implication on the university's top management efforts to achieve UKM's objective as a research university and the need to improve the policies which are appropriate in line with achieving the goal of a research university as targeted.
